As if the Kardashians didn’t already have kopyrighting issues out the wazoo, Khloe’s latest business venture has gotten her all mixed up with the State of New York. Rich Soil (ugh), a clothing company Khloe owns with husband Lamar Odom, is being accused of ripping off the Department of Agriculture’s's “Pride of New York” logo. Susan Rosenthal, a lawyer for the department, demanded in a letter sent to Rich Soil that the company immediately halt the sale and advertisement of merchandise bearing the emblem lest the state be forced to take legal action. Lawsuits seem to be a recurring theme with the Kardashians. Maybe they should just … stop trying to put their name on things? I’m just saying. [NYMag.com]
Amidst rumors that she’s pregnant with her second child (Jay-Z told my boo at Hot 97, Old Man Ebro, that they’re not expecting), Beyonce gave fans a new glimpse at her first born, Blue Ivy Carter. Shown sitting in her BIC monogrammed director’s chair backstage at one of mom’s concerts, Blue’s hair has been styled into her first set of braids. Adorbs all around. [via I Am Beyonce]
Jennifer Lawrence: is there anything she can’t do? She’s universally beloved for tripping and falling during the Oscars, she gets away with smoking pot, she admits being star-struck by Honey Boo Boo, she jokes about her butt, and she just so happens to be one of the most gorgeous and intriguing actresses in Hollywood. Also, according to a recently released X-Men image, she looks stupendously hot as a naked blue mutant.
Yesterday, ”X-Men: Days of Future Past” director Bryan Singer tweeted a photo of Lawrence in her role as Mystique, and she looks predictably fantastic. What’s really interesting about the photo, however, is the fact that Lawrence is wearing a completely different Mystique costume this time around — and even with the fairly detailed picture Singer shared, you can’t tell what’s fabric and what’s flesh.

“That’s my son’s business … It’s not the public’s business. Jack Nicholson once told me: ‘You should never give your personal life away, otherwise people will pick you apart. They’ll never believe in your character.’ Women should have lots of secrets. It’s our right to have secrets. Otherwise, what would we write in our memoirs?”
– January Jones responds to being asked who the father of 20-month-old Xander is in her New York Times profile. Now I’m thinking is Jack Nicholson is the father, which would make for a great memoir. [NYTimes]
Did y’all see Ke$ha at the Billboard Music Awards and think, “Wow, she’s brave to wear so little makeup at such a star-studded event.” If so then you’re probably dead or an Evangelical or work for Hollywood Life or something because the rest of the world was agog about her Givenchy dress that showed off her formidable haunches.
Sidebutt (or “Side-butt”) is now A Thing after the “Die Young” singer pranced down the blue carpet like a prized racehorse to show off how the human body reacts to infinite amounts of squat-thrust exercises. Read more on Celebuzz…
I know doing a Well Played post about Heidi Klum on the beach is painfully predictable, like, “Oh really? Heidi Klum looked great at the beach? YOU DON’T SAY.” But this picture caught my eye because beach outfits and swimsuit cover-ups are always, always brightly colored floral prints, and then here’s Heidi chilling on the beach with her bodyguard boyfriend in this black and white striped Beetlejuice-y dress. It’s an unexpected choice, and it looks awesome. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Jennifer Lawrence is at the Cannes film festival to promote the latest “Hunger Games” movie, “The Hunger Games: Murder Party, USA.” Actually it’s called “Catching Fire,” which is an equally obtuse name, but whatever. Here are three outfits JLaw’s worn thus far on her current trip to Cannes. She — or her stylist, whichever — seems to be favoring black and white (again) and pointy pumps. I like all three outfits, for different reasons — the white gown has a surprise pop of color on the bow; the black and white gown is classy and grown up; and I really love the flirtiness of the black bodice top (though those pants, gross).
But what do you think?
